Coca-Cola's share price has dropped by 1.6 per cent after Cristiano Ronaldo moved two promotional bottles away from the cameras at Portugal's pre-match press conference on Monday.
Ahead of Portugal's 3-0 win over Hungary on Tuesday, the national team captain comically removed the two bottles on the table and switched them out for his water before saying "Agua! Drink water. Coca-Cola urgh".
As a result of the world star's actions, Coca-Cola's share price has dropped from $56.10 to $55.22 while the company's market value dropped from $242bn to $238bn.
